"Walking across a stage and receiving a diploma is a momentous occasion for students, their family and friends, and the many members of the UTC faculty and staff that were part of the academic journey. UTC graduates earned their degrees and deserve a warm handshake, a pat on the back and a huge 'well done.' We are all looking forward to congratulating our Spring 2020 graduates.
"The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted operations at UTC, and we are continuously monitoring CDC guidelines. We know this is an uncertain and frustrating time and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we continue to navigate through this crisis.
"Please let us know if you have any questions. We are Mocs. Together we will soar."
